Committee Details Plans For New Plastic Rules

The Ad Hoc Plastic Committee, a group of Livingston business owners and residents who worked to create new guidelines for plastic use in the township, presented their findings to the Township Council at the Monday, October 21, conference meeting.

Beth Lippman, who runs the Livingston Business Improvement District, and Eric Baltuch, who runs Livingston’s recycling committee, headed the committee and addressed the Council on Monday, detailing the group’s plans for plastic reduction.

“Some of it is more ambitious than other committees (from other towns that have passed plastic ordinances), but we wanted to put our flag in the sand with our goals,” Baltuch said. Much of the language in the proposal was taken from a Cranford plastics ordinance, he added.

Traffic back-ups were heavy by 3:30 p.m., when this photo was taken. The work was done by 5:30 p.m., Kiracofe said. JCC Photo
